… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Adam Air may soon halt all flights

The Jakarta Post , Jakarta , | Tue, 03/18/2008 1:16 AM

Budget carrier PT Adam Skyconnection Airlines (Adam Air) announced Monday it was scaling down operations and might stop all flights this Friday until further notice, due to its inability to settle insurance payments.

In a statement made available to The Jakarta Post, the airline said the insurance payments were due March 20 and no agreement had been reached on the issue.

The airline has reduced its flights since Monday, currently serving passengers traveling between Jakarta and a number of major cities only; Medan in North Sumatra, Padang in West Sumatra, Denpasar in Bali, Surabaya in East Java and Bengkulu; with 11 planes.

Normally, the company serves 21 destinations per day using a total of 22 planes.

This comes just days after two shareholders pulled out of the company amid an internal rift, which included an allegation of the misuse of company funds totaling Rp 2.1 trillion.

The two shareholders are Global Transport Service (GTS), a subsidiary of PT Bhakti Investama, which owns 19 percent of Adam Air, and the Bright Star Perkasa business consortium, which holds a 31 percent stake.

The allegation of misuse of funds was made by the shareholders' legal adviser, Hotman Paris Hutapea. Adam Air has flatly denied the accusation, saying the two shareholders knew all along about the company's financial condition.

The Suherman family, including Adam Air president director Adam Suherman, and Sandra Ang own a 50 percent stake in the airline.

Adam said the airline had yet to receive any legal notification that the shareholders had pulled out of Adam Air.

The rift with shareholders has led to the company scaling down operations, forcing the government to step in and facilitate negotiations.

A meeting was held between the airline and shareholders on Monday, facilitated by the Transportation Ministry's director general for air transportation, according to J.A. Barata, spokesman for the National Committee for Transportation Safety.

"Adam Air's planes can't fly because the investors (shareholders) can't settle their differences over investment problems. Meanwhile, insurance is mandatory for every flight," Barata said, in explaining the reasons behind the company's decision to scale down operations.

The airline's decision prior to a long national holiday later this week has left thousands of ticket-holders in the lurch.

In Yogyakarta, hundreds of customers and travel agents gathered at Adam Air's office on Jl. Diponegoro seeking refunds.

"Right now, I'm more worried about how I can get to Jakarta on the 20th," said Dewi after receiving a full refund for her ticket. (lva)
